Larviciding is the treatment against the larval life stage of the mosquito in ditches, rivers, canals, swamps and other waterways. Ascension Parish Mosquito Control performs daily operations of routine larviciding either manually, by truck, drone and/or in extreme circumstances plane.
Adulticiding is the treatment against adult mosquitoes. These mosquitoes become prominent during the dusk hours. Monday – Friday, beginning at dusk, Ascension Parish Mosquito Control dispatches 11 trucks spraying areas throughout the Parish.*

Also, it is impossible to drive down every single Parish road, therefore we use sophisticated methods to cover as much area as possible. Please note Personal Service Spraying request.
